5:41 pm
to a life in the church. >> reporter: what messages jump out to you when you see the easter story that people that are even secular can take away? >> there's also a more personal psychological meaning that's broader than just the christian community. i think that's the symbolism of a stone rolled back and an empty tomb. because most people at some point in life feel trapped by something or somebody and the easter message, resurrection message, says there's hope that you can be brought out of that which holds you captive. >> reporter: even if you're not religious, dr. brown says there are some important lessons we can all learn from easter. do you have to be a religious person, do you think, to get that message?

steve: in fox 5 health news, a study finds breast cancer is often overtreated with preventive double mastectomies. dari: joining us is keri
5:46 pm
this had been the talk for a while. people thought they were doing this prophylactically to help themselves. now they're walking it back a bit. >> this was a study that looked at a half million women over a decade. they found the rate of doing a preventive mastectomy -- you find breast cancer in one breast, but you decide to remove the opposite breast to prevent the likelihood of it happening in the other breast. they found the rate of women opting to do this tripled from 4% to 13 percent over just 10 years. what they found when they looked at survival rates of 200,000 women is it did not improve survival. and that is the key finding in this study. steve: that's interesting. you can understand the thinking about it. maybe there's a problem potentially down the road. let's do it all now. >> that's right. steve: but it doesn't work like that. >> women are doing it for peace
5:47 pm
keep in mind there are down sides. it's a painful procedure. there's a long recovery time. a lot of women lose sensation on the skin on the chest wall. it's to be taken very seriously. now that we know it may not improve survival -- dari: i feel like angelina jolie ratcheted it up. >> it's the angelina jolie effect. she made her announcement in 2013. the study looked at 2002 through 2012. we were seeing rising numbers prior to the announcement. i imagine now it's higher. steve: okay. dari: let's talk about this. new headsets promise to bring more than music to your ears. do tell. >> this is a device called nirvana. what they are claiming is they deliver an electrical stimulation to the ear which causes a calming sensation or what some people are saying is a high sensation. so i did a little research into
5:48 pm
the idea is they're stimulating the vegas nerve. it has been proven if you stimulate it through an implantable device under the skin, it helps with epilepsy and depression. that's a known treatment. however, when administered through the skin, it gives a little current, feels like putting a 9 volt battery against your tongue. it stimulates the nerve through the the inside of the ear. studies looked at its effect on the things we talked about, the epilepsy and the depression. there's nothing that's been looked at as to whether it causes the high that it produces. in some of the studies, there have been some harmful effects in that it can affect your heart rate. i have some reservations about using the device. i would want to actually have you get cleared by your doctor to make sure there's no harm. it does need to be researched
5:49 pm
steve: this sounds like supplements, they have to prove the claim. >> exactly. steve: how much are the headphones? >> $200-something. steve: it's a big promise. maybe they work, maybe they don't don't. we appreciate it. audrey is here looking at the numbers today. we've been all over the place. the good news is this is probably the best part of the day so far. >> you're right. we started off with snow across the tri-state area, especially out towards the east end where it blanketed areas of the twin forks. the city, we hit a high of 50. we did have a half inch of snowfall through the overnight. we hit the high at 2:45 this afternoon. looks like we'll see our numbers rising as we go into the next couple of days. our high temperatures. right now, 47 in the park. the winds are a bit blustery. they're coming at 24 miles an hour out of the northwest. our pressure is rising, which is indicating to us that better
